Today is EARTH DAY!  Today we take some extra time to think about our home – the planet Earth.  If we were at school, our Eco Team would have so many initiatives in place to bring attention to the many issues with the planet, and many ideas of how we can make things better!  Unfortunately we are all at home, looking out the window at just a small part of our planet.

That does not mean that we can’t do something!  Make more of an effort to recycle, compost, pick up some litter in your neighbourhood, recycle batteries in the proper place, or keep them so that we can recycle them when we get back to school, use a reusable water bottle instead of a throw away bottle, metal utensils instead of single-use plastic utensils, and on and on…

There are so many little actions that we can take to make our planet fantastic!  It may not seem like these little actions make much of a difference, but when you put them all together, it really does!

Mrs. Bradnam; who leads Earth Day when we are at school, has forwarded a little video for you to watch. She also wants to remind you to send in pictures to your teacher of you doing anything for earth day or doing things which show you enjoying and appreciating our earth.

Enjoy and Happy Earth Day St. Augustine Storm!
